Read the new issue of readergirlz.

This month, we're discussing Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I am extremely happy that this book was selected for readergirlz. You may recall me praising it last year, when I named it to my Best Books of 2007 list. I think that Hannah's story is extremely powerful, and I hope it reaches readers on various levels.

Talk About It

Discuss this month's book and other great reads at the readergirlz forum.

Join our hour-long chat with Jay Asher on Thursday, July 24th starting at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST at the readergirlz forum.
